    Hi,
    I was wondering if anybody knew how to maximize a child window when it is first created in an MDI application. Thanks

    It seems that you can use SendMessage to do that but in which function should I call SendMessage so that everytime a new child window is created, it is maximised. My current MainFrame.cpp only has OnCreate() and PreCreateWindow() functions. Thanks for your time,

    Found it:
    Code:
    void CChildFrame::ActivateFrame(int nCmdShow) 
    {
       // Create the child frame window maximized
       nCmdShow = SW_MAXIMIZE;
       
       CMDIChildWnd::ActivateFrame(nCmdShow);
    }
    Makes life easy
